Designed by Tinker Hatfield
Hohbach-Lewin, Inc. provided full structural plan checking services to the City of Eugene for this new 12,541 seat multi-purpose arena. The new arena will be home to the University of Oregon Ducks basketball teams. Construction is nearing completion and the arena should be ready for Pacific 10 February tip offs. The prominent location on the corner of campus assures that the building will act as the gateway as fans arrive from I-5.
The arena is projected to cost $200 million and is being designed in collaboration with TVA architects of Portland Oregon and Ellerbe Becket of Kansas City.
The University of Oregon will soon be able to lay claim to the country's most original basketball floor.
Oregon officials unveiled the newly built floor, and to say the least, the design lives up to the school's reputation for cutting edge panache and flair. The court is framed on all sides by a forest of fir trees, an homage to the school's picturesque Pacific Northwest setting and to Oregon's 1939 national title team nicknamed "the tall firs".
St. Vincent de Paul Society Continues to Bring More Lane County Affordable Housing Units on Line...
Bergsund DeLaney Architects has once again given lie to the claim that affordable housing needs to be an affront to the soul or to architectural sensibility. Time and time again they have proved that even with tight budgets, careful and thoughtful design can result in sustainable housing projects that are eminently livable and a credit to the project developers - this is why the St. Vincent de Paul Society has returned to the firm for repeat projects.
Hohbach-Lewin, Inc. has supported this effort by providing the structural design for three St. Vincent Paul low income housing projects: the Aster Apartments, a 55 Unit Senior Housing development, the Royal Building, 35 Units of low income housing and the Donald Lamb building, 37 units of low income housing.
The housing units at the Donald Lamb building included the 1,000th low income housing unit developed by St. Vincent de Paul in Lane County. The outdoor terrace and community room situated on the top floor of the Donald Lamb projects offers views of the downtown and the tree covered hills beyond. These inviting common spaces encourages a sense of community among the tenants.
"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..."

...and that means a lot of Christmas cheer for most, but also a whole lot of cold! That's why Hohbach-Lewin is continuing its annual holiday tradition of collecting L or XL men's or woman's coats to be donated through our client, the St. Vincent de Paul Society (See article above).
If you would like to spread a little of your own holiday cheer, send a check made out to the St. Vincent de Paul Society to Hohbach-Lewin's chief elf, Stacy Robertson (260 Sheridan Ave., Suite 150, Palo Alto, CA 94306) and Hohbach-Lewin will match your donation dollar for dollar.
When not fulfilling her responsibilities as chief elf, Stacy keeps busy assisting with Hohbach-Lewin's accounting needs and just in general doing whatever is necessary to help keep the office running smoothly!
Stacy's is the friendly voice our clients have heard answering the phone for the last ten years.
Hohbach-Lewin will be closed from December 24th until January 3rd
See you all next year!
